Cimmerian Times
July 13, 2018 AD (6768 AY)
Far, far north
In the land of the white bruin
There is a lone wolf crying
There is a wind which pierces glaciers
There is a desert of snow
There is a mountain of ice
There is a whale song in the distance
There is a dancing spirit of light
But it is unseen
It is unheard
It is unfelt
For there is darkness which is overwhelming
Silence which is deafening
Numbness which is cruel
There is shadow that engulfs
Where no light can thrive
Even man's artificial light
Where no warmth can prevail
Even man's fire
Where no heart can burn
Even when in a multitude
And inflamed with love
In this ocean of snow
There is no water
There is shadow and darkness
Which surrender only
To the union of love

Festival of the Saints (Shahra) - Orchestra

From Tur Abdin to Hakkary in Turkey, from Alqosh in Iraq to Urmi in Iran, the spirits of the Assyrian saints -- St. Gabriel, St. Zayya, St. George, St. Shalita -- soar over the mountains and deliver the Lord's blessings to all Assyrians. Come boys and girls, let us go to the festival of the saints, 'tis the day of singing and dancing and hopping! Hurry my love, for time passes and I wish to see you at the festival standing as tall and proud as a minaret.
